REPLACEMENT NAMES FOR THREE PREOCCUPIED MAYFLIES GENUS GROUP NAMES (EPHEMEROPTERA)

Abstract : Three junior homonym genus group names were detected among the mayflies genus group names and so, the following replacement names are herein proposed: Novokivua nom. nov. for Kivua Lugo-Ortiz & McCafferty, 1997; Mccaffertya nom. nov. for Callistina Sun & McCafferty, 2001 and Ninadsa nom. nov. for Leptoneta Sinitshenkova, 1989. Accordingly, new combinations are herein proposed for the species currently included in these genus group names. Novokivua elouardi (Gillies, 1989) comb. nov. and Novokivua insuetum (Kopelke, 1980) comb. nov. from Kivua Lugo-Ortiz & McCafferty, 1997; Mccaffertya panda (Sun & McCafferty, 2001) comb. nov. from Callistina Sun & McCafferty, 2001 and Ninadsa calyptrata (Sinitshenkova, 1989) comb. nov. from Leptoneta Sinitshenkova, 1989.
